Oprah Winfrey decided to casually stop by a Weight Watchers meeting in New York City this week, as if she is not Oprah-Freaking-Winfrey, one of the most famous and beloved celebrities of all time. According to People, Oprah has already lost 26 pounds on the program, and she wanted to stop by the meeting that was being run by her Weight Watchers coach, Lisa Levy Shaub. Shaub was in on the surprise, but no one else knew she was coming.

Oprah and her best friend Gayle (who is also on Weight Watchers) stopped by the meeting and reportedly stayed the entire time. But of course, being Oprah, she couldn't just mill in the with other attendees undetected. She had to make an entrance.
Fun Weight Watchers Surprise....Posted by Oprah Winfrey on Tuesday, April 19, 2016
At 0:46 seconds, a woman does a double take so hard you would be surprised that she didn't snap her neck. You get a neck injury, and you get a neck injury!
Shaub told People:
It was kind of hilarious, because we were in the beginning of the meeting, so we had already started, and she came in from the back of the room, so there was a slow discovery, and people were all doing double takes, screaming, but it took a second before it hit people. And there was applause, and people saying, 'We don't believe it!' and hands on their faces, and smiles. It was amazing. It was perfect.
So, were the other Weight Watchers members even able to continue having a normal meeting after Oprah, someone who's outfit probably cost more than their rent, was sitting in the room with them? Shaub said that her presence did not keep people from feeling comfortable in the meeting.
It was fantastic, it was clear that she really was interested and wanting to be a part of the meeting, and really see what the meeting experience was like. And because of that, it allowed the members to really be themselves and do a regular meeting, so even though there was a charge in the room, and I think the buzz and the excitement never really dropped, people were still able to be themselves.
